For nearly 20 years, Sun Tan City has been keeping its customers golden-skinned with a full complement of tanning beds and custom spray tans. A retail section stocked with tanning lotions from Pro Tan, Brown Sugar, and Supre Tan helps skin retain its glow between sessions in one of the salon’s six levels of tanning bed.
The menu of wraps at Perla's Beauty Center might summon images of food to your mind. That's understandable, as it lists both chocolate and pomegranate varieties. You shouldn't, however, even think about eating, licking, or fondue-dipping these decadent wraps, as delicious as they may seem. Instead, just kick back as the treatments?which also come in mud, seaweed, aloe, and mineral varieties?relax the mind and soften the skin.
Perla's isn't just about making skin look radiant, though. They also offer services for the rest of the body. Nail techs gussy up digits during manicures and pedicures, and hairstylists fashion new looks with cuts, styles, and color treatments.
With services for men, women, and children, the beauty experts at Pure Platinum Salon use hair as a canvas to bring each client's fashion sense and personality into physical form. After consultations, they grab hold of scissors to snip split ends and sculpt looks that would make Chia Pet?mannequins crumble with envy. The stylists can also hone in on damaged hair and correct color or strengthen strands. Unlike lazy portrait painters, the team doesn't stop at the head; they can wax away unwanted body fuzz and spray skin with a golden tan so clients are ready for weddings or everyday events.
Salon Bellissimo honors the timelessness of true beauty by decorating its spa like an Ancient Roman bath with concrete urns, great columns, and a statue of Hebe, the goddess of beauty. And this reverence for history is fitting, since owner Cecilia Sammons has been in the industry for more than 30 years herself. Today, she and her staff of stylists, nail technicians, and makeup artists transform clients using modern haircare products from L’Oréal and Moroccanoil and nail polish scraped directly off Botticelli's The Birth of Venus.
Kneaded Relief Wellness Spa is all about accommodation. Each time clients walk in for a massage, they’re left alone in a private treatment room to undress to their level of comfort and drape their bodies with soft sheets. Then, one of Kneaded Relief Wellness Spa’s professionally trained therapists enters the room and rubs away muscular tension with a relaxing session that incorporates techniques from Swedish, neuromuscular therapy, or other massage modalities. Throughout massages, which typically last between 30 and 90 minutes, therapists stay attentive to clients’ requests for more or less pressure. Kneaded Relief Wellness Spa also pampers clients with skin-softening exfoliations and facials, along with unique scalp massages and infrared-sauna sessions.
Advanced Holistic Health aims to give its clients the tools they need to repair their bodies. To that end, they offer massage therapy, exercise coaching, and nutritional therapy, as well as private and semi-private yoga classes that can help students of all levels push through fitness plateaus. Classes such as Hatha, Yin, Vinyasa, and restorative yoga are designed to encourage freedom of movement, expression, and mental and physical practice. In the past, clients have commented on the clean, open feeling of Advanced Holistic Health's building, as well as their friendly and welcoming staff.
